Not sure where Im meant to put this thread but thought I'd try here... Just wanted to find out if there are any unemplyed mums to be who are wholy supported by the OH's and do not get any state benefit, etc. I thinking of leaving work because I hate it so so much! Only been here 3 months - If I leave now I will not get Mat pay or Mat Allowance because I wasn't working for 6 months before this job. We have a loan on a car still to pay off and we owe my mum some money coz she paid for my OH to have his back op earlier this year. other than that - its just usual rent and bills etc. OH's wage is never the same coz he's a self employed contractor. Obviously im concerned about money worries but OH says I should just leave here and that we will be ok. We managed for 6 months when I wasnt working so I know we can do it again - and after bubs is born I wouldnt come back to work anyway - but I was banking on a bit of Maternity allowance to keep paying the loan on the car - coz every bit helps! but now Im not sure anymore - im beginning to think its not worth the stress. I have arguements everyday at work - I hate it so much and it depresses me! Any views or encourangement?!
